A moment of silence

On days like this, when the internet is quiet, my Google Reader stays empty, Facebook lingers and all the bloggers that blog 3X a day shroud themselves in silence, I can only imagine what everyone else is doing. I imagine people baking, cooking, roasting, laughing. Hanging out with family. Playing with new babies. Running turkey trots. Going for their first ski of the season. On days like this I wonder what Rachael Ray is really rcooking and eating after I watch her for weeks making some form or another of Thanksgiving dishes on FoodTV. At least, we know what Giada is doing today, watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade and looking fabulous.

We are so used to knowing what people are doing who we might have never met yet feel oddly familiar with, and when we don’t know we can only imagine. And sometimes that seems….. even more interesting. A moment of silence.

And then, they all come back, with pictures of feasts and adventures, of shopping plans and exploits and everything is back to normal.
